Danielle: Finally, a fourth tropical storm

Peak winds are at 60 m.p.h., and so far it's not particulary scaryt.

Danielle: Finally, a fourth tropical storm


Right now it's not looking like much of a threat to the East Coast and no warnings or watches have been issued, but a storm with a name is prowling the North Atlantic.

Tropical Depression 6 officially became "Danielle" late yesterday, and this morning its peak winds were 60 m.p.h., according to the National Hurricane Center.

It could affect Bermuda, but not until the end of the week, if then. The five day outlook has becoming a Category 2, with winds just under 100 m.p.h.

At this writing, it looks like it could churn up some ocean and become a headache for Atlantic Coast lifeguards during the weekend, but that's about it for now.

Here is the latest advisory.
